Is everyone pregnant?
Amelia and I went to Gymboree the other day for their open Gym session. Amelia went directly to this rolling platform, sat on it and pointed at the rope. I started pulling my precious cargo, when a boy decided to join her. I look up at his mom to see if it's OK that I take her son for a ride, and notice she was visibly pregnant. Then another boy got on the wagon and his mother was expecting as well. A third child hopped on and I said, "sure, I'll pull you guys around. Everyone else is pregnant." The latter boy's mother says, "that's funny I'm three months pregnant". I looked around and almost every mother I could see had a belly. So for 15 minutes, I did my duty and pulled those kids around the Gym.
Better them than me. I thought I wanted two in a row, but now even number two is in question. It's like this, when Amelia sleeps well I'm all for it. When she doesn't, I can't even imagine going through sleepless nights again. And these women having virtual twins...Wow! Hats off to them and their mental sanity. They can always count on me to pull their oldest ones around the Gym. Ay Mama!
